This booklet is an introduction to sexual health for people with HIV. Part 1 looks at sexual health from a broad perspective and explains why having HIV needn’t stop you having and enjoying sex. The booklet describes the ways that having HIV can affect how you feel about sex, and suggests ways to tackle problems or anxieties you may experience. Part 2 explains why good physical sexual health is important for people living with HIV, and outlines the steps you can take to protect your own health and that of other people. There is also information on the impact of HIV treatment on your risk of passing on HIV. Part 3 provides information on specific sexually transmitted infections.
